#Rpm Day4 Song5 v2

So it wasn’t another easy night. It started off with me plugging in my usb synth keyboard, I normally just use the laptop keys to create music. I thought playing and singing would help, and then I could lay it all down. You know, do something different. I came up with this very neat chord progression, and then everything just fell apart after I placed it in renoise and tried to find a vocal melody over it. I tried to push it here and there, but nothing would work. I let it breathe and just wrote what came back, and this is the result.

Hunz RPM05 02

  • Wanting to write something a bit more epic sounding
  • Came up with a nice unresolved chord progression
  • The sample I drew in and made into an instrument is demanding more of the spotlight
  • New progress came with playing on the synth keyboard
  • Expanded this out
  • Happy with how it sounds
  • Pulled in various snare/hats/kicks I’ve collected
  • heard a very strong beat as the notes played through ..
  • been mixing in headphones :cry:
  • about to change over to speakers
  • Sounds ok
  • Placed everything together
  • it just sounds normal :cry:
  • tweaking things a bit
  • Scrapped movement completely
  • Twisted drum timing around (snare – Kick)
  • Trying to just make the 10pm Deadline
  • Mix is terrible but a concept is there not very happy with this one either

I am so exhausted. I almost took tonight off to rest up (after my 1am last night), but I just needed to reach the half way mark for the 1st phase of writing. I secretly want to complete 11 – 12 tunes and then select the 10 that will work together.. shhh. I also fear the fact that most of these songs lack some middle8 movements .. Hope you are enjoying the journey. It’s certainly different to churn songs out night after night. I usually only write when I feel like it, so I find myself trying to put myself in the mood to write. I have to shout out to my amazing wife too, Thank you! On another note, I kinda regret putting (with previews) in the title .. lulz

    It’s very interesting to see the creation process. Hearing the final product makes it sound so easy. It’s kind of good to see that someone I consider a musical genius sometimes has to struggle :) kind of inspiring.
